Completely made our wedding
From start to finish it couldn’t have been better. Gareth and the whole team were unbelievable! They couldn’t have made the whole process any easier, no request was too difficult and they bent over backwards to ensure the whole day was perfect. The food was superb! I am vegan and Gareth researched some excellent options for me as well as managing to cater to a few other dietary requirements including gluten free and dairy free. The feedback from our guests equated the meal to a Michelin star restaurant. The boat itself is stunning, really well looked after with every little bolt shining and such a talking piece. It looks beautiful without the tables set up however once decorated it is second to none. Unbelievably helpful with set up and take down they enabled me to complete my vision for the perfect day (which looked much better than anything I found on Pinterest). They organised departure, arrival and our cruise from our chosen location without hassle. The staff on the day were so helpful with nothing being too much hassle. They put the guest at ease and delivered impeccable service. Gareth was able to provide contact details for the jazz band who were fantastic. Honestly we couldn’t recommend the Windsor and Maidenhead Boat Company any more highly. If you have any sort of event and your even considering booking then stop thinking and book already. They made the day so special we are still having our guests say how great their experience was. We can’t thank you enough!

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have had some beautiful weddings on board. I would have to say our best has presently been exceeded by the now, Mr and Mrs Evens. They are indeed a wonderful couple. Some excellent little touches made the Georgian feel at her very best.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Wedding planning can become very stressful with lots of different things to consider, and you may even feel like the day begins to get hijacked but remember why your doing it. It's a celebration of the love you share, so make that the focus. Find the little touches that will be the parts that are remembered and create the wedding unique to you. You can email me with any questions, queries or requirements, and I will do my best to help in any way.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The personal touches are exactly that - personal. They all have a story and a reason for being there, which are generally always heartfelt. I think the little Lego chef! has to be my favourite personal touch I have seen. Definitely one to ask me about as this section is not big enough.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Elegant - Personal - Heartfelt - Welcoming - Caring

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Ether the group shot at the back of the boat as we turn in Windsor or just the happy couple on the aft deck by the red Ensign.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

I would hate to name drop, and without being too cliche, I think the happy couple is always our celebrities on the day. That being said, Alan Titchmarsh was one ill always remember. He was very polite.

What’s your favourite canapé?

To make, I would say the BBQ pork belly as it's very simple and we get the trimmings. However, to eat, would have to be the Boursin and Grape. It packs lots of flavours and is very refreshing.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Got to be a cup of tea with my wife. It can be very late or early getting back from working an event but on those rare occasions when we are both awake, a cup of tea and a catch up with her is something I cherish.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Toilets - you may not have been expected that but it's because on a boat they can be terrible but we pride ourselves on having clean, real, normal toilets.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

My team's passion. They will always give their all, go the extra mile and dig deep to make it all work. Events are hard, and weddings are the pinnacle, get it wrong and that's someones big day ruined because of you! We work hard to make sure that does not happen.
